Melbourne Renegades win by six wickets with four balls to spare. Well executed chase by the Renegades. Finch and Harper set it up in the Powerplay. Christian and Nabi finished it late. The Hurricanes finally lose a game. They lost it with the bat losing 3 for 11 in the Powerplay and never recovered. They did well the scrounge together 145 but it was 10-20 short. The Renegades controlled the chase well and had it under control most of the way. Sam Harper is Player of the Match. He took two catches, including a good one to get rid of Alex Doolan. Then he clubbed 32 from 18 to give the chase some real impetus. The Renegades climb to 3-3 and they face the Brisbane Heat on Thursday. The Heat face the Thunder in Sydney tomorrow night. Join us then for that clash. Thanks for your company tonight. We'll see you tomorrow.

Kalyanaraman: "don't the players get distracted with the mic and continuous conversation with the commentators?" They turn the communication to the earpiece off when they are on strike. But the players are prepared to do. Some aren't and they don't take the mic.
